Debut solo album from multi-instrumentalist songwriter Stephen Selman.

I couldn't be more excited to announce that I'll be recording my first full-length solo album this August, 2012.

For two weeks, I'm relocating myself and my recording equipment to a house in the town of Aiken, South Carolina to be alone and make this record.

I'll be recording the entire project on a Tascam 424 MkIII 4-track tape machine. The sound is wonderful and it's the most fun I've had recording in a long time. See the above video to hear a couple early demos.

To bring this album into the world as I envision it happening, however, I earnestly need your financial help. Though I am recording this album on my own equipment, with my own two hands on every instrument, this will still be a costly endeavor. Your contribution will pay for the following:

Mastering Studio & Engineer

Vinyl Record Pressing

Web Development

Promotion

The amount I'm asking for is the bare minimum I need to make this record a reality. Any funds beyond this amount will go towards promoting the album to the best of my ability. Together, we can give this project a fighting chance to be heard.

I'll be providing updates as the project develops, with some special goodies for contributors. I want you to know what your funding makes possible. 

Thank you so much for being a part of this. Please forward this to anyone you believe may be interested and able to help.

Forever in your debt and grateful for it,

Stephen Craig Selman
